What is the Housing Action Plan?

The City of Camas is creating a Housing Action Plan to encourage housing diversity, affordability, and access to opportunity for people of all incomes. The goal of this plan is to help the community achieve a greater variety of housing types and costs to better meet the needs and desires of individuals and families.

The Housing Action Plan will:

  • Rely on thorough data and an inclusive public participation process to understand current and future housing needs.
  • Assess existing housing resources and policies and identify ways to build on or improve them.
  • Outline specific strategies the City of Camas plans to take to meet the community's housing needs over the next ten years and beyond.
  • Further the city's comprehensive plan housing goals and be adopted by City Council.

The Camas Housing Action Plan is being funded through a grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce. To learn more about the state's program, click here to see their Housing Planning guidance.


Why Should I Get Involved?

The people who live and work in Camas have a wide range of unique housing needs and preferences. To best understand what types of housing the city needs, we want to hear from you!

A successful Housing Action Plan will reflect everyone's ideas and be built on a strong understanding of the city's challenges and opportunities. We need your input to shape this plan! Register for the site and share your perspective by:
